Just finished watching some of the re-run on speed since i missed it last night. I'm mad how Ferrari has 0 points after 3 races, wtf happened to them this season. Vettel is a pretty amazing driver, did he ever spin out in the race? I dont think he did, while most others did. I dont think he even went off on that one turn where everyone was going off. Red Bull has a nice car. I wanna see a nice dry race now!

Ferrari has been far from reliable this season. I never saw Vettel spin, or go off track once, he's a young talent and continues to impress me.

I just think alot of the big name teams, Ferrari, Mercedes, BMW, are having problems with the new cars. It seems like the lower teams that use to not be the big players are rising to the top while the other ones try to catch up. I do not know why, may they are not use to to the new style and have to change over a lot of engineering ways and what not. But it was a good race, and glad to see Red Bull finally win a race!

An entertaining race for sure, but it would be nice to see a whole race started and completed in the dry and without the aid of the SC.

It was funny to hear the Speed announcers saying how great Hambone was in the rain and he spun or went off track at least 3 times? I need to watch the racing live with the BBC stream as the audio.

They do, but it does not compare when you can watch and listen without commercials.

Brawn was the Honda team last year... they practically gave up middle to late last season. From what I understood, is that Honda already had started development of the 2009 car, while Ferrari, McLaren, BMW were still focused on last season. Honda/Brawn (now Mercedes powered) had 18 months of R&D while the other teams had approx. 6/8 months... that's more than twice as much trial and error. McLaren Mercedes made a markeble improvement in Shanghai... though that could be attributed to both Hamilton and Kovalainen being great drivers in the rain, and nothing to do with their modified diffuser.

Anyone see the race?? Dude ferrari is making too many mistakes. First Kimi doesn't even pass Q1, same mistake they made with masa another race. Then the car gets fucked up somethin to do with kers or somethin like that i think. Then they dont put enough gas in Masa's car. Wow! Brawn another 1,2.

I saw it. Ferrari has to get their shit together... it's amateur hour over there. I am very happy for BrawnGP and I continue to believe that Vettel is the next Schumi.

Thanks to Bernie, F1 has become a circus. Constantly changing specs, tons of political BS, twilight races, etc. Think of how much more exciting it will be with spec motors. I don't see the incentive for teams such as Ferrari to stick around just to build a chassis and shove a Cosworth spec motor in it.

It was bad enough when the cars had a million different wings and fins hanging off them. Now, you've got the mini-me rear wings and snow plows on the front.

Can anybody really say they think Jenson Button is WDC material???

As long as the white haired clown and the wannabe Nazi are in control, I don't see things improving.
